6:03 am
trip. that's 5 minutes slow headed towards the vine street expressway. no real problems. we can expect that to jump up in a couple of minutes, maybe half an hour. on the pa turnpike roadways here, 22 minutes westbound and eastbound from route 1 to valley forge. we are still experiencing 10 to 15-minute delays on septa's warminister train. no delays for new jersey transit or amtrak. >> remember when you're away from your tv count on the "nbc 10 news" app to check your forecast. you can check the radar and road conditions as the rain moves through. you can check the first alert bother radar and also your route to work. new from overnight, a septa officer is hurt after a scuffle with a homeless man. this happened at the north philadelphia station at broad and lehigh. this happened about 2:30. septa tells us the man was

6:07 am
you see the flag blowing. that wind is coming off of the ocean. a northeast wind. those low clouds are likely to hang in for a good bit of the day. as a matter of fact, all day. and very little on the radar right now. we see this area to the south, that is really really diminished, and the areas to the north and west that is still up there. that one may expand during the afternoon but not necessarily get real heavy. so as we go through the morning hours, you may see some showers to the south, but during the afternoon the attention is generally going to be focused north and west of philadelphia. you can see more and more of the area covered, but this is mainly light, perhaps moderate rain as opposed to the heavy rain and thunderstorms that we saw yesterday. look at that. fairly large area of rain and so we may even get some this evening as well. temperatures are low. way lower than they have been and they're not going to be
6:08 am
going up a whole lot during the day today. so that's the issue. high temperatures only in the 50s in parts of the area especially to the north of the pennsylvania turnpike and perhaps near 70 to the south as most of the rain falls north and west but it's a damp and chilly day. seven day coming up in a couple of minutes! 6:08. 53 degrees out there. you saw in that camera from glenn how visibility is low in a lot of places and also the roads are wet. that's going to have an effect on drive time. >> let's find out exactly where jessica boyington is watching the roads and what the slowdowns are like. >> guys we are starting to pick up volume all across the board but everything is still moderately under control on the roosevelt avenue. you can see slight reduced visibility and fog in the area. all of the roadways moving along fine. southbound on the schuylkill expressway currently no problems and no problems headed westbound as the volume is still relatively light.
